    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    This is my first time posting and need some input from parents who have some knowledge of tracheomalasia. My son, 11 years old, was just diagnosed with congentital tracheomalasia through a bronchoschope. He was put on prevacid for 3 months due to acid reflux and instructed not to engage in any strenuous physical (endurance) acitivities. Dr. will not see him again for another 3 months and he is unclear of where to head with treatment due to it not commonly seen in 11 year olds. Any suggestions of where to head, or what type of specialist to head to, for a 2nd opinion? He is currently under the care of a pediatric pulmonologist.
